Bible Readings


Ron Parsons

Some of the comments in these readings are adapted from books in my library.  No recognition is given because they are not intended as authorities, but are used because they express my understanding clearly.  All the ideas expressed in these readings, right or wrong, are my own.

The text is the normal King James version, with some alterations to the “thee’s” and “thou’s” and the words ending in “eth”, “est”, etc. to make it conform to modern speech. Because of this, occasionally a word has been re-spelled, or added, to enable the reader to understand the sense more easily.  Also, extra punctuation has been included where necessary, or the original altered to make easier reading. 

None of these changes are intended to alter the meaning of the text.

All emphasis and the words in square brackets [like this] have been added by the compiler.

A PDF downloadable version should be available for each reading, starting from Introduction.


The aim of this series:

“Then He said to them, ‘O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into His glory?’ And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded to them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.” Luke 24:25-27.

Duplication and distribution of these readings is encouraged.

I promise I will NOT bother you with any other discussions or mail.
